A Few of My Favorite Things Tag

"Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens, brown paper packages tied up with string--these are a few of my favorite things!"

My friend Bri from Forget Not His Benefits tagged me with this little Sound of Music-inspired tag, and it looks like such fun!

The rules are as follows:

Thank and link back to the person's blog who tagged you. -- Check!
Thank and link back to the person's blog who started the tag. -- Thanks, Beth in Boots!
Write about seven of your favorite things in your post!  Add at least one picture of everything.

Alright, let's get into it! I shall endeavor to make this interesting and share mostly things that you may not know about me yet. :)

Good, old-fashioned snail mail. There's nothing quite like writing and receiving handwritten letters.

Music. I'm pretty much always listening to music, whether it's old jazz, worship songs, or epic period drama soundtracks. In the words of (the odious) Mrs. Elton, "Without music, life would be a blank to me."

Hot tea and iced coffee. I simply cannot choose one or the other! I love having iced coffee in the morning (and sometimes in the afternoon, too) and a relaxing cup of tea in the evening.

All things art. Freshly sharpened colored pencils, ink pens, new sketchbooks, watercolor paint, pastels, quick sketches, detailed truly is my passion.

Autumn. God's creation is just stunning this time of year.

Beautiful old homes. They have such charm and character!

Window seats. This is rather random, but ever since I was a little girl, I've dreamt of having a window seat where I could curl up and read! The above picture looks like absolute bliss.

Cats! I know, I know, I've already shared seven of my favorite things, but I couldn't resist throwing this one in there. It's the perfect excuse to show y'all my family's adorable new kitten, Ginger! She's incredibly sweet and I'm just a little smitten with her. ;)

Now, I'm supposed to tag at least seven other bloggers, so... 

I hope you all have a lovely weekend!


  1. I share a lot of these favorites, not all but a lot. Of course, you may have figured that. Seems we have so many similar tastes. Although, I'm more of a dog person myself, I think your kitten is so pretty!! <3

    Loved reading this. And thanks for the tag! :)

    1. Haha yes, we really do have similar tastes! #kindredspirits ;) Aww thanks! Yeah, I'm much more of a cat person, but I do like dogs...from a distance, haha. ;P

      I'm glad you enjoyed it, Elanor! And you're welcome!

  2. Love your answers! I can relate to so many of them :) Thank you for tagging me! I hope to post it soon. :)

    1. Thanks so much, Danielle! I'm glad you enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to seeing your answers! :)

  3. Thanks for doing my tag! I thought it had died like the rest of the tags I have started!


    1. You are so welcome! I had a lot of fun with it! :D
